On Thursday, April 22, 2010, the University of San Diego’s College of Arts and Sciences will host a Project Runway panel discussion and viewing party for students, faculty, and members of the USD community. Project Runway, which airs on the Lifetime Television Station, is a competition between young fashion designers vying for a chance to attain $100,000 to start their own design line and a feature spread in Marie Claire magazine.
